The property

A charming cottage set in a wonderful position, enjoying lovely, long-distant views towards Castlemaine Harbour, 2.5 miles from County Kerry’s sleepy little village of Boolteens. Offering homely and welcoming holiday accommodation, Red Door Cottage sits entirely across the ground floor and makes a superb base for your Kerry adventure. There are two spacious and bright bedrooms to choose from, each offering a good night’s rest, along with a family bathroom. The open plan living space with kitchen area, dining area and seating area forms the hub of the home, where everyone can spend time together planning tomorrow’s adventure over dinner or enjoy a snooze by the open fire at the close of a long day. Outside, the garden provides the perfect place for a picnic, where the views stretch over the surrounding countryside down to the harbour; why not enjoy breakfast here on a sunny morning before taking a wander down the water, where the majestic mountains climb up around the coast? The immaculate beach at Inch is just a short drive away, where you can spend all day on the silky sands or take a surfing lesson and learn how to conquer the wild Atlantic waves! There are endless walks in this glorious area, whether you choose coastal or mountain treks, or gentle strolls through the iconic countryside of this beautiful county. Castlemaine is the place to be if you fancy a night off from cooking, whilst the vibrant town of Tralee can be found within half an hour’s drive. Killorglin and Killarney are also worthy of a day trip and within easy reach of your charming cottage, whilst the beautiful Dingle Peninsula provides endless adventures and stunning sights. This lovely cottage, with its superb views and comfortable accommodation, is the perfectly-situated Kerry base for a holiday to remember.
